The season introduced a new starting line twist and contained two different first legs that started in different locations. Each of the legs resulted in the elimination of the last team in Israel. The 14 teams were split into two groups of seven and each of the groups run in one of the alternative first legs, while being unaware of the existence of the second group.
The season visited four continents and eight countries in a race distance of more than 50,000 kilometres (31,000 mi), including the franchise's first time visit to the nation of Georgia, in which the nation has not been visited in the original version at the time of air (the nation would later be visited in the 28th season, in 2016.)
The results of the final leg (as well as the overall placement) were determined when teams had checked-in at the Pit Stop mat at Estancia La Republica in Argentina. However, teams had to fly back to Israel and make their way to the Moshe Aviv Tower in Tel Aviv before revealing the actual outcome of the race, and the winning team.
In Mid-2015, it was revealed that Liron "Tiltil" Ourfelli is one of the contestants who will compete on the 7th season of the Israeli edition of Survivor.

- A red team placement means the team was eliminated.
- An underlined leg number indicates that there was no mandatory rest period at the Pit Stop and all teams were ordered to continue racing. An underlined team placement indicates that the team came in last on a "continue racing" leg was not eliminated.
- A blue team placement indicates that the team was the last to arrive at a pit stop in a non-elimination leg of the race.
- An orange + indicates that there was a Double Battle on this leg of the race, while an orange − Indicates the team that lost the Double Battle and received a 15-minute penalty.
- A brown ⊂ indicates the team who received a U-Turn; ⊃ indicates that the team voted for the recipient; A cyan ⋑ indicates that the team was granted an exclusive U-Turn in a double U-Turn; ⋐ indicates the team who received it; ⊂ and ⋑ around a leg number indicates that the Double U-Turn was available for that leg but not used.
- A yellow < indicates the team who received a Yield; > indicates that the team voted for the recipient.
- Matching colored symbols (teal ^, magenta °, pink * and olive ~) indicate teams who worked together during part of the Leg as a result of an Intersection.
- ^ Leg 1 was split into two halves. Seven of the teams completed the first part of the leg in Jerusalem, while the other seven completed the second part in northern Israel. Those who were not eliminated from the first group met up with the second group in Petah Tikva.
- ^ Pnina fell at the starting line and fractured her wrist. She was taken to hospital to get treated, and then she proceeded with Hen directly to the Pit Stop for elimination.
- ^ Sinai injured her head during the second-last match of the Double-Battle; she and Irit elected to forfeit the remaining match and serve the 15-minute penalty.
- ^ During the third match of the Double-Battle, Roni became trapped in her kayak and was held underwater for a brief period. Despite sustaining no injuries, she elected to forfeit the task as she was too traumatized to continue the task. All other teams to arrive after them immediately received their next clue without performing the Double-Battle. Yafa & Boaz did not arrive, however because of their situation (see below), Roni & Yael received the 15-minute penalty once all of the other teams had passed them.
- ^ Yafa & Boaz traveled to the hospital at the beginning of the leg, due to concerns that Boaz had contracted pneumonia. This turned out not to be the case, but by the time he was discharged the other teams had already finished the leg. Thus, Yafa & Boaz were directed to the Pit Stop without performing any of the leg's tasks.
- ^ Alexa & Raz chose to serve a 1-hour penalty so that only Raz had to complete the log-rolling challenge.
- ^ Gal collapsed from exhaustion and dehydration after his third straight attempt of the Double-Battle. Unfit to continue, he and Liel forfeit all remaining matches and all other teams to arrive after them were immediately given their next clue without performing the Double-Battle. Gal & Liel received the 15-minute penalty once all of the other teams had passed them, by which point Gal had recovered enough to race.
- ^ Yochi & Linor were unable to finish the final leg because they were unable to complete the final challenge, thus accepting a third-place finish.
Teams may vote to choose either U-Turn or Yield. The team with the most votes received the U-Turn or Yield penalty, depending on the respective leg.

The first Detour of the race was a choice between דבש (Dvash - Honey) and חלב (Halav - Milk). In Honey, teams would make their way to an apiary in the park where they would have to harvest a full jar of honey from some honeycomb. The twist was that teams would be wearing mesh cages on their heads and would have a bottle of live bees dropped inside of it while they worked. Once they had filled the jar, they would receive their next clue. In Milk, teams made their way to another area of the park. There, they had to use two long sticks (one stick for each team member) to carefully grasp bottles of milk by the neck. If teams could lift 12 bottles of milk and place them into a holding tray without dropping them, they would get their next clue.
- Additional tasks

If teams gave a wrong answer, they would have to listen a history lecture about the subject before they could search again.
- After the history task, teams were told to travel to "the area which was formerly been the stables of Malabas". Teams had to figure out that they were being directed to the HaMoshava stadium in Petah Tikva, for the Pit Stop.

Then, each team member had to stay at opposite ends of one of the roads in the park with frying pans, trying to pass a pancake between each other using them. Teams had to exchange the pancake every time they passed a mark along the road, of which there were at least 30. Once at the end, teams then had to toss the pancake onto a plate.

This local would stay with them until further notice, though teams still had to do all of the navigating. If teams spend too much time between tasks, such as when driving or looking for clues, the local would periodically insist that the teams receive a Swedish massage from them, which they would be obliged to accept.
- At Hötorget, teams would vote for who would be U-Turned before searching for an ABBA fan who had their next clue. Teams would have to dress as pop stars and choose an ABBA song.

Teams would have to dress up in Viking costumes and use public buses to travel to Djurgården. There, teams would have to toss axes at a wooden target. One team member would throw axes until they hit the target, and then their partner would go. The yellow area of the target was worth 10 points, the black area worth 20, and the red center worth 30. Together, teams had to score at least 30 points, so if the first team member hit the center, the second team member would not have to hit the target. The next clue would direct them to a different area of the park, where they would have to eat a can of Surströmming, one of the most foul-smelling foods in the world, to receive their next clue.

Before leaving the sauna, teams voted for who would be Yielded.
- At Kaivopuisto, teams would take part in a game of Angry Birds. One team member would dress as the red bird, while the other would dress as the pig king.

The Detour was a choice between לפשפש (Lapeshpesh - Rummage) and לייבש (Laibesh - Dry). In Rummage, teams would have to choose one of three distinct plastic fish-shaped lures. They then had to climb into a waist-deep container of fish guts and garbage body parts, searching for a matching lure somewhere in the muck. If they found it, they would get their next clue. In Dry, teams had to filet fish and cut off their heads, skewering the heads onto a spike and threading six of them together into a fish head necklace. Each necklace that teams made had to be worn until the challenge was done. Once teams had created six necklaces and hung them out to dry, they would get their next clue. Before leaving the harbour, teams would also find the U-Turn reveal board.
- Additional tasks
- At Kivikon Hiihtohalli, described to teams as the "Snow Centre of Helsinki", teams entered a temperature controlled room that recreated Finnish Lappland, and found their next clue at the ice bar. One team member had to dress as Santa Claus, while the other would dress as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The two would attach themselves to a single pair of skis and travel along a snowy path, picking up presents from along the path. All of the presents they picked up had to have the same kind of wrapping. Another member dressed as Rudolph would pull the one dressed as Santa, who was riding with the presents in a sleigh. The teams' next clue instructed them to travel into the Helsinki suburbs to deliver the presents to passers-by. Each Finnish local could only receive one present, and teams were specifically instructed not to give the presents to working people such as taxi drivers. The locals had to open up the gifts in the presence of teams, one of which had their next clue inside.
- Teams were then told to travel to the church square in Porvoo after being provided a driver for the rest of the leg. There, teams had to load pieces of firewood into a wheelbarrow, twice the amount that the wheelbarrow could fit. They then had to transport it through town, up and down hills and over very uneven pavement, with each team member lifting one of the wheelbarrow's handles. Once they delivered the wood to a specified address, they would get their next clue.
- At Kokonniemen Maauimala, teams would participate in the local sport of Wife-carrying. One team member would have to hold the other team member upside down around their back as if they were a backpack. While carrying their partner like this, they had to run through a course around the lake and through shallow parts of it. They would also have to climb over hay bales. Traditionally in this sport, the one being carried is a female as per the name, and so any males who were being carried had to wear a blonde female wig. After completing the course, teams would receive their next clue and will vote for the upcoming U-Turn.
- At Bekananoka Oi swamp, teams would participate in a game of swamp volleyball. Teams would play volleyball against a pair of local players in the mud of a swamp. The first team to reach 10 points would win; if teams won a match they would get their next clue.
- At the city square of Hämeenlinna, one team member had to stand behind a line on the ground and throw fruit pies at their partner standing a distance away. They would have to try to hit their partner in the face with a berry pie. If teams found a berry pie, but it didn't hit the recipient's face, it didn't count. Once teams scored a hit, they would receive their next clue.
- At the Petäys Resort, teams had to stand on the ends of a log and roll it in the water so that it made 10 complete rotations. Any full rotations made would be saved even if teams fell in the water, but doing so requires teams to serve a 1-hour penalty and then have only one team member roll on the log. Once 10 rotations had been made, teams would get their next clue.
- At the Aulanko Tower, teams would have to climb to the top of the 322 stairs leading to the tower as if it were a board game, with each step representing a space. Teams would continually roll a pair of dice to advance up the stairs. Some spaces, however, would force them to a higher or lower point on the staircase, or even direct them directly to the top (landing on the 320th step, would send teams all the way back to the first step). Teams would find the Pit Stop once they reached to the top of the tower.

If the Queen was dissatisfied, she would send them out to try again. When the dinner was complete, a maid would rush in saying there was an "urgent" message for the Queen, which would direct to the teams, who discovered it was their Roadblock clue presented to them to a tablet. A man dressed as a James Bond villain from Doctor No would ask them the Roadblock prompt, and then boast that he had locked "their girl" in a red telephone box with a bomb strapped to her, and to come and save her.
- At the Tate Modern, teams had to pick up a mobile tea set. They had to convince three locals, either all at once or separate, to sit down and have tea with them.

The first guard to crack would lose the Double-Battle.
- At The London Antique Clock Centre at 87 Portobello Road, many of the clocks were marked with a sticker and stopped at 7:00. Teams were told to search for the one clock that was "not for sale", and were left to figure out that it was a small replica of Big Ben whose hour and minute hands were reversed, reading 11:35. Only one team could attempt this at a time, and each team was given a 200-second time limit. If they handed over the correct clock, they would receive their next clue.
- The clue after the clock task instructed teams to travel to the Pit Stop on a bridge next to "Elizabeth Tower", which teams had to figure out for themselves that this was another name for Big Ben.

The clue then told teams that the other team member would have to complete the course in a must faster time, to receive their next clue proper. Before leaving the reserve, teams voted for who would be Yielded.
After completing the Roadblock, teams would then complete the Detour, a choice of בננה (Banana) and אננס (Ananas - Pineapple). In Banana, teams made their way to Finca La Rebusca, a banana plantation, and entered the field of banana trees.

They would then load the five bushels onto a hanging track and use the local pulley system to deliver them to the preparation plant, where they would receive their next clue. In Pineapple, teams made their way to a nearby pineapple field where they would have to harvest 100 pineapples and then load them into a truck. After this chore was complete, teams would get their next clue.
- Additional tasks
- At the start of the leg, teams traveled by taxi to a marked area of the Hacienda Sueño Azul. At the bottom of a grassy valley, teams would find a pile of coconuts and some local baskets and tools, and teams had to use these tools and whatever other means available to them to transport 200 coconuts up the uneven hillside of the valley to a marked drop off point.

If all of the creatures were placed in the correct cages, teams would get their next clue from Mowgli.
- At Ticari Village, teams will discover the results of the Yield. Afterwards, teams would have to choose a local vending device that was essentially a tabletop attached to the top of a bicycle. They had to use this unwieldy device to transport glasses of juice, a maximum of 80 at a time, across a rugged path through the village. At the end of the path, teams had to pour the juice into a container, trying to fill it up to 8 quarts of juice. There was enough juice in 80 glasses for 8 quarts, so if teams did not spill anything they would only have to make one trip. After filling 8 quarts, teams would get their next clue.
- At San Isidro El General, teams had to find a cattle-drawn Sarapiquí cart in Santa Elena and convince two locals to take a ride in it. Teams would help lead the cattle through the streets to the town's church, where they received their next clue.

After a brief walking tour of the factory, teams would pick up a spool of thread made from alpaca wool. They would have to stand together and wrap the wool around themselves continually until all of the wool was off of the spool, revealing an image of a race flag. Teams could hand over the spool for their next clue.
- At Mercado Rodriguez, teams had to search for a Chola who had their next clue underneath her bowler hat. This Chola would then join them as they traveled on foot to their next destination.

Once the one playing Perón finished the song, teams would get their next clue.
- At the 9 de Julio Avenue, teams would have to use only their hands to retrieve dulce de leche from a container and carry it across the street to a stand where they would deposit it into a glass jar. This would prove difficult as 9 de Julio Avenue is the widest avenue in the world, spanning 18 lanes, thus teams would have to obey all pedestrian crossing signals, which would be enforced by crossing guards. Once they had managed to transport 4 litres of dulce de leche to the stand, teams would get their next clue.

Teams would have to perform the entire scene in Spanish, but were given scripts and teleprompters with the lines transliterated into Hebrew. During the scene, the maid character "Juanita" would perform many unscripted actions intended to throw teams off (She would feed Gustavo hot chilli sauce instead of soup and would give him a real slap in the face, and she would then actually pluck Celeste's eyebrows and would unexpectedly toss water on her when she 'fainted'). Teams would not be judged for how they acted during these unscripted portions, but had to maintain their integrity and focus for the rest of the scene. If Colombo approved of their acting, he would give them their next clue.
- At Bubble Studios, where they would have to learn how to perform a Tango dance while being suspended in the air by wires, which would include dancing while sideways and upside-down. If both team members could perform the dance with a professional partner, they would get their next clue.
- At the El Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore, teams had to search for 10 marked books. Teams were not required to find all of them, but had to use the books' titles to discern the location of the Pit Stop. All of the books had something to do with something found in space, such as planets and stars, which would direct teams to the Galileo Galilei Planetarium.

There, one team member would be attached to a crane and held upside-down like a pendulum. Their partner would have to swing their partner around while also stacking a series of boxes directly beneath them, trying not to have their partner knock them over. Each of the boxes was decorated with the flag of a country that had been visited on the race, and they would have to be stacked in the correct chronological order from bottom to top. Once the boxes were all stacked, teams would get their next clue.
- At Plaza San Martín, teams were given a 50 kg block of chocolate. They had to use only forks, spoons and butter knives to hack away at the block, looking for a tiny race flag somewhere inside.
- At the River Plate Stadium, teams would have to climb up a humongous climbing rig being held high in the air by a crane. They would start at the bottom of the rig, and had to make their way up to four levels that each featured long beams extending outwards in either direction. These beams would also tilt, requiring teams to balance themselves on either side so that they could make their way to the ends. At the end of each beam, teams would find a number, and each team member needed to traverse four of the beams to find four numbers. These numbers, when put together, would reveal the two years that Argentina won the World Cup. Once they had made it to the top, returned safely to the ground, and given the two years to a judge, they would receive their final clue.
- At the Estancia La República, teams would find only an empty Pit Stop mat and another clue box. Teams were informed that they had finished the race, and were told to fly back to Tel Aviv and make their way to the rooftop of Moshe Aviv Tower in Ramat Gan to discover their overall placement in the race.
